In 2020 we open the doors even wider!
This year the Locarno Film Festival will surprise its public with innovative forms of participation. More people can attend, filmmakers can be seen and heard from more places around the globe, turning the obstacles of the COVID-19 crisis into opportunities to reach out further. Keeping the doors wide open to talented artists this is one of the ambitions of this year’s Open Doors edition. In 2020, twenty films will be screened online from Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Philippines.
We thank the Locarno Festival for its guidance and support to directors and producers from South East Asia and Mongolia, presenting their work to the world despite all odds. The participants of the Open Doors section engage in workshops, present their work, show their films and – the best win prizes, this year mostly online. The Locarno Film Festival remains a stepping stone for greater professional recognition. It broadens the horizon of its viewers and to the producers, it opens the doors to the global world of film making.
Stay tuned and enjoy!
